Come enjoy Colorado-grown wine, while mingling among technology leaders and professionals at the 8th Annual Wine Tasting at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
The 2012 Annual Wine Tasting is one of the year's most anticipated events. With great food, wonderful Colorado wine and an evening dedicated to pure networking, this year will be no exception.
Like other CTA events, this event attracts hundreds of key decision-makers. With an expected attendance of more than 400 technology professionals again this year, this event will take professional networking to the next level.
In addition to the wine tasting and great networking, we're partnering with Open World Learning to do a school supply drive that will benefit at-risk students. Every year many at-risk students head back to school without the necessary tools to be successful. In the upcoming school year OpenWorld Learning will provide its innovative technology and leadership program to approximately 500 students throughout Metro-Denver. We're asking for your help to support OpenWorld Learning’s students; will you please bring two items from this list to the event? OpenWorld Learning will have a table for you to learn more about the programs and to drop off the supplies.
Wineries - Our Annual Wine Tasting will represent between 6-8 wineries from in and around Colorado. Check back for more details as they are confirmed.
Garfield Estates - Featured Winery
Since we planted our first estate vineyards in early 2000, Garfield Estates Vineyard & Winery has been committed to a simple and focused philosophy. Produce world class wines using 100% Colorado Estate grown grapes that are food and consumer friendly. This means sustainable practices in the vineyard and competitive prices for our wines. Making a great wine requires 3 things; the best grapes, state of the art equipment and a highly skilled winemaker. At Garfield Estates we have invested in all three. We carefully grow and manage our own vineyards, this insures we will have the highest quality grapes to craft our wines. No over-cropped bulk wine grapes for our wines. Our highly skilled winemaker has crafted wines in Europe and the US, and our facility incorporates state of the art equipment that would be at home in the finest wineries of Napa. Like a great restaurant, it not about location, it's about passion!
